Overview

This eBook edition includes a foreword from Golf Channel’s Rich Lerner, a new afterword from the author and an original essay by Arnold Palmer, “Reflections on the Game.”

With the possible exception of Babe Ruth, no athlete has ever done as much for a sport as Arnold Palmer has done for golf. During the course of his professional career he won 92 tournaments, 62 of them on the PGA tour. He is the first golfer to reach the million-dollar mark in tour earnings, and the first four-time winner of the coveted Masters championship. To fans around the world he isn’t just the most exciting personality in the history of golf, he is golf.

Palmer’s impact on the sport extends far beyond the green. He is the first athlete to parlay success on the field into lucrative endorsement contracts—and in the process, he revolutionized the economics of sports.

Yet for all his time in the spotlight, the true Arnold Palmer has remained largely unknown. With unprecedented access to Palmer, his family, his friends and his business associates, acclaimed sports writer Thomas Hauser provides a behind-the-scenes look at the “King of Golf” who has come to exemplify the American Dream. Packed with stunning photographs from Palmer’s own archives, Arnold Palmer: A Personal Journey is both a tribute to an American hero and the most intimate portrait ever of the man behind the legend.

“I have always thought that, of all the books I have done, A Personal Journey was a particularly good one with its wonderful selection of pictures and the excellent text that accompanied the photos. I enjoyed working with Tom Hauser on the book and felt we created an interesting chronicle of my golfing career and my life.” —Arnold Palmer
